Resident Art & Writing Program

 

Art & Writing Program

 


"Every human is an artist.
And this is the main art that we have:
the creation of our story."
Don Miguel Ruiz

Organize your residents to participate in the 2020 LeadingAge Ohio annual Art & Writing Program! Five District Shows will be held across the state this Spring, with all winning entries progressing to the State Show during the LeadingAge Ohio Annual Conference, August 25 - 27, 2020 in Columbus. Entry is free to all our member residents and clients.

NOW is the time to encourage your artists and authors to prepare an entry (or two or three!) for the 2020 Program. Fuel enthusiasm so it can spread and involve everyone! Both novice and experienced writers and artists may submit entries. Two or more persons may work together on a project and enter one of our cooperative categories.

 

General Program Information

All Residents of LeadingAge Ohio member facilities are invited to participate! Award winners from each District Exhibition will show their work at our Statewide Show to be held in conjunction with the LeadingAge Ohio Annual Conference and Resident Celebration Day at the Hilton Columbus at Easton, August 25-27, 2020.
